August 2016

The lab welcomes three new graduate students, Lori Fomenko (PhD program), Meijian Yang (PhD program), and Brandon Holland (M.S. program).

Lori received her B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from UConn in 2016. She is a GAANN fellow, and is interested in precipitation extremes and urbanization.

Meijian received his B.E. degree in Hydroelectricity Engineering from North China Electric Power University in 2013, and M.S. degree in Hydrology from the China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research in 2016. He is interested in hydrological and crop modeling and climate change. He will be working on the PIRE project.

Brandon received his B.S. degree in Environmental Engineering from UConn in 2016. He holds a Gates Millennium Graduate Fellowship, and is interested in hydrological modeling.

Welcome to all!


June 2016

Guiling and Dagang both attended the Eric Wood Symposium on Hydrology at Princeton University in the beginning of June. While honoring Eric, the symposium was truly a celebration for advances in hydrological sciences in the past four decades. What a great job Siva (and other colleagues on the organizing committee) did putting together this fantastic symposium!


Dagang completed his short-term visit in our group and returned to Sun Yat-Sen University in late June. He will continue to work on the collaborative research he started during his visit. Dagang, keep up the good work!

March 2016

Dr. Ying Shi joined the lab as a visiting scholar from the China Meteorological Administration. Her research in the next one year will focus on vegetation dynamics and climate variability/change in Asia using our regional climate system model.

Dr. Dagang Wang joined the lab as a short-term visiting scholar. Dagang was a former PhD graduate from this group, and currently he holds a faculty position in Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, China. He will be working on land surface modeling and land data assimilation.

Ying and Dagang, Welcome!
